Sen. Curt Thompson of Norcross received quite a shock this week when ICE officers knocked on his door looking for his wife (a native of Columbia). She was not home and has not been taken into custody:
He and his wife “hope to have this situation quickly resolved with the immigration authorities,” Thompson said in a written statement Wednesday evening.
In the statement, Thompson said his wife is the victim of a “notario.” In some Latin American countries a “notario” is an esteemed lawyer; in the U.S. it translates into notary public. Some U.S. “notarios” misrepresent themselves as lawyers and often file incomplete and improper immigration applications for unsuspecting clients.
